Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I get BT TV?
    Probably. The minimum requirement for getting BT TV is a TV aerial and a BT broadband package with download speeds of at least 2Mb. BT broadband is available to the vast majority of the country, so you're probably in luck. To get certain TV services, however - including BT Sport - you'll need BT Infinity, which isn't quite as widely available.
  2. What do I need to get BT TV?
    You'll need BT broadband with a minimum download speed of 2Mb, and a TV aerial that’ll allow you to receive Freeview TV and radio channels, preferably a rooftop aerial. For some services, such as BT Sport, you'll need fibre optic BT Infinity broadband too.
  3. Can I get BT TV without BT broadband?
    No - all BT TV packages include either BT broadband or BT Infinity, so if you want BT TV, you’ll need to switch to BT broadband. If you only want BT Sport you can add it to any Sky or Virgin Media TV package.
  4. How long does it take to get BT TV?
    BT will get BT TV up and running as soon as it’s switched you to BT broadband, which it aims to do within two weeks of getting your order. An engineer will set it up for you and run you through how it works. This takes around 30 minutes - you can book an appointment when you order your package.
  5. Can I save money by bundling TV, phone and broadband?
    Yes you can. Providers like Sky and Virgin Media offer competitively priced bundles, comprising broadband, home phone and TV, and getting all three services from the same place often leads to significant savings. It also makes it easier to manage finances, as all services come on a single bill.
  6. How do I switch to a new TV service?
    Switching TV services is a breeze if you use a comparison service like ours. Simply enter your postcode, and we’ll list all your different options side by side, so you can easily compare features and price. When you find a package you like, click the link and you’ll be taken straight to the provider’s site. Fast, simple and hassle-free.
